Hello. I'd like to know if the Gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3 I'm using can handle a graphics card upgrade from Gigabyte gtx670 to gtx970 (brand not specified) properly. Also, if it does work, whether there are potential issues, drawbacks, bottlenecks or anything that I should be aware of before proceeding with the upgrade. (including casual overclocking-wise)

My current specs are:
CPU Intel i7 2600K
PSU Seasonic (don't recall specifics, but definitely has adequate power)
Mainboard Gigabyte z68x-ud3h-b3
RAM Corsair Vengeance 4x2GB
Monitor Samsung 1080p 32" TV

(I plan to also upgrade to 1440p 144hz gaming in the far future if I can, so the then-old gtx970 will come in handy, too.)

Thanks for the heads-up and the good read. I guess I will either wait for the driver fix(?) or put together a new rig from scratch instead.

Thanks Kohwali also for the input.

As a side note, I could've sworn I searched for the same question well before making the thread. I probably wasn't thorough enough so sorry about that, I guess.
